Travel Try Out Structure 2019-2020 Season
Travel Teams

2019 Spring Tryout Structure

  • The A Team Head Coach for that age group will be the Tryout Coordinator. The "B" and '"C" Coaches for that age group will be involved in the selection process.  Independant accessors will be provided by the club for all ages.

  • All players (Elite and Travel) MUST register before the Tryout and make every effort to attend all tryouts.  A minimum of 1 Try out is a usual requirement to be placed on a team (TMT can make an exception for extenuating circumstances)

  • Head Coaches in all age groups should make every effort to be aware of all Haverford players in their age groups before tryouts. Where possible teams in the U9-U12 age brackets should play scrimmage games leading up to Tryouts so that all coaches are aware of all club players in that age group.
  • All players wanting to try out in an older age group will be grandfathered in for the 2019/2020 year if they play already in that age group. Anyone else interested in playing in an older year group must send a request for permission via email to TMT@HaverfordSoccer.org
  • Players are to be notified in order by each team coach – “Elite / A” team first then “B” team and then “C” team. This is to be coordinated by the Tryout Coordinator for each age group.
  • The Tryout Coordinator will be responsible for calling all players not selected for any teams, in their age group.

Travel Soccer

 Travel Soccer Program

 

Travel soccer is designed for players U-9 and above who possess the interest and ability to play the game of soccer and compete at a higher level. HSC’s goals and objectives for players at this level focus on attitude, developing skills and good work habits, instilling a passion for the game, and having fun. Travel soccer challenges players to realize their highest potential through more intensive training, higher levels of competition, and more games. Boys play in the Delaware County Soccer League (DELCO).  Girls play in the Philadelphia Area Girls Soccer League (PAGS).  U9 teams participate in the Central League, focused in the I495/Route 30 corridor so that our younger players can concentrate on soccer and not be distracted by traveling.

Interested players attend tryouts in the spring.  All interested players must register before attending tryouts, there is a $5 fee for the tryout. The U11 through U15 age groups also offer Elite teams, which play year round.  Any player interested in this level of competitive play should be sure to register for the Elite tryout in their age group.  Everyone who tries out will be notified if he/she is chosen for a team or not.  If a player is accepted on a team the commitment is for one year although not all teams participate in practices/games year-round. All forms will be collected after a player has accepted a position on a team.
